Pauline Cheeseman: Owner of Little Rays and our fearless leader!
Hello All! My name is Pauline,
I’m a proud Mother of three, Grandmother to seven, Owner of four dogs and over ten other species of animal. (Serious animal lover).
I started my working life as a stable girl working in racing stables, which catered to my love of animals. After I married my lovely husband Ray, and my children started school, I joined the Surrey Ambulance Service where I learned a great deal about first aid and in handling emergencies. It was very intense and so when I left after 13 years, I started at the Christopher’s Children Hospice working with so many wonderful children and their families. This is where I learned my love for looking after young children and helping them get in touch with the outside world. After seven years, I moved on to work in the community for the Surrey County Council offering respite for parents with autistic teenagers.
Through my working life, I always had a passion for young children and always thought I could offer more. So in 2013, my daughter Mairead and I started Little Rays where children can get to learn and play in nature, nurturing an early love and respect for the earth and everything around them.
I have a variety of hobbies which are mostly animal based. I help foster and rescue Great Danes, and I attend scent classes and agility with all my dogs (Great Danes and Miniature Dachshunds). I also sponsor ex race horses and donkeys. I sometimes bring my Miniature Dachshunds to preschool and the kids love playing with them. They also love getting attention from the kids!
Hello, my name is Andy.
I moved to the Uk from Australia in 2015, and so far love the move!
I’m passionate about delivering a safe and fun environment for children to play, and a relaxing place for adults to come and have some downtime whilst their kids enjoy the facilities.
Being a Dad and Grandad myself I really enjoy seeing the children enjoying themselves and I’m always happy to assist where necessary.
We are available for hire at the Wilfred Noyce for any party you wish to hold there.
